School of the Woods, Alm Valley

Scharnstein, Oberösterreich, Österreich

25 years anniversary Forest School Almtal 1994 - 2019

Senior forester Fritz Wolf, a practising forester, farmer and hunter, will accompany you on  a memorable walk through the woods. He will teach you how to experience the wood with all your senses.

Forest environment education, or forest pedagogics, that’s how this type of profoundly guided tour through the woods can be called. Every participant so far was highly impressed and enthusiastic about it. Its motto is „Smell, taste, feel, and understand!“ You will be witness to an incredible variety of plants, animals, smells, tastes, sounds and feelings.

Senior forester Ing. Fritz Wolf and his colleague Albert Botkar have introduced forest pedagogics to Austria,  and they have already trained more than a 1000 certified forest pedagogues.

Since 1995, he runs the Alm Valley Forest School, together with son Christoph. Wolf is a certified wood pedagogue, a teacher in scythe techniques, as well as nature-, landscape- and shieling-guide.

He will introduce you to the high art of sustainable forestry management. Standing in a long tradition, the protection of nature here is not just a keyword, but you will be shown how ecology and economy can be practised to go hand in hand in an exemplary and understandable way.
